Professional Actor Auditions

First Stage is an Equity Theater for Young Audiences committed to age-appropriate casting. We cast a combination of Equity and non-Equity performers in all adult roles.

Young Performer Auditions

Young performers are cast in all roles that call for young people. Our use of young performers with proper training and direction creates a production that rings more true and honest, and audience members can connect with our productions more strongly. In addition, young people working alongside adult professionals not only enhance the play, but also benefit greatly in terms of their own personal development.
